Everything is falling into place and the event should be a great turn out. As of now the hall is reserved, the permits are approved, and tickets are available. The big part of our event was food, but thanks to US Foods, and a good friend, it is in the works of being donated! We have plenty of other ideas in the making and we are working on awesome prize baskets for the Chinese auction! Along with that we are looking for a DJ that can help us provide entertainment for the night. If you have any suggestions please let us know! We are also looking for volunteers for the event night. If you are interested please contact us. Help us reach our goal with our biggest event yet! Invite your friends or family and enjoy the night!
DONT FORGET, we are also still collecting cloths for our clother drive. We take any soft items and you can contact us to figure out how to get them to us! we will be collecting until May of this year. The more we collect the more we make. Doug's Journey will receive .5 cents for each pound we collect, and then the clothes will be donated to people who need them! So basically when u help us you are also helping another cause!
Doug has been perfecting his balance and is standing longer and longer without holding on to any thing! We recently had an eye visit at Wills eye hospital and we found out that the little sight Doug has can be diagnosed as near sighted. The doctor also informed us he does have the ability to fixate on objects but does not follow through with tracking. We already knew this from what he shows us at home, but it was nice to hear a doctor agree with us and it to be documented for other doctors to know as well! Recently Doug has been getting really good at fitting his circle shapes into tight circle shape hole! Yay Doug! He is getting to the age where he lets us know when he wants, and doesn’t want, us to be involved in his play time. He has also become really cuddly and likes to give kisses so we make sure to take advantage of that! He really enjoys roaming the house to find anything new he hasn’t discovered yet! Ha-ha. We are soaking up as much as we can because these times will be gone and he will be off to school before we know it!! :(
